Two years after the signing of the Final Agreement between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP), the legal framework that governs the agrarian issue in Colombia needs to be assessed and analysed, as well as the principles that cannot be overlooked based on the domestic legislation. Given the absence of a similar study, it is essential to review the conditions for the application of the regulation, particularly regarding community models of land-related conflict resolution in the Meta department, as one of the most severely affected by the internal armed conflict.
The exploratory study focuses on the possibility to examine and analyse the regulatory and jurisprudential situation in the Colombian domestic legislation, as well as the relevant decisions made by international bodies and the socio-legal conditions in some of the territories in the Meta department. In order to trace the main limitations and opportunities provided by the Havana peace agreements, the thematic axes of the study are as follows: land restitution, titling-redistribution of fallow and confiscated lands, the fulfilment of decisions made by the authorities, the substitution of illicit crops, and community popular consultation mechanisms.
